I would consider this mechanical pencil seriously awesome.
I've been using the same mechanical pencil for more than a year now and it still
functions like new. I don't usually use the eraser that is on the top because
it'll look "ugly" when using it so I use a separate eraser to solve your problem
with the small eraser. So basically, it doesn't really bother me.
Another good use is the shake function. It can be turned on or off however and
whenever you want it to be. I usually turn it off because I'm fine with just
click the pencil from the top. But if someone is quite lazy to click the pencil
from the top, the shake function might be really good for you to use.
The shiny-ness of the metal will wear off (for a really really long time) so it
won't get all rusty and brown (ew haha). After a year of me using the pencil, I
can see the shiny-ness wear off but it's not all the way rusty.
Overall, beautiful, simply color design that is lightweight.
I would defintely buy it haha. But here's a tip :). If you visit Taiwan, or
Japan and find this pencil, you'll find it way less cheaper than here in the
website. I got mine from Taiwan and I got it around $6 ;))). Just a tip. But if
you don't mind paying the extra price, go for it.
